Drivers are reminded of laws regarding driver behaviour now that lockdown is easing

    Transport for Buckinghamshire, Thames Valley Police and Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue have issued a safety reminder to drivers.

    It reads: 

    During the pandemic we have all had to accept some restrictions and guidelines that differ to the normal freedoms that we have in this country.

    The country has largely responded with great community spirit and acted more considerately towards others with acts of kindness and respect.

    Now, as some restrictions are eased, we should remember that certain laws regarding driving and driver behaviour have always been in place, and will continue to be in force when the pandemic is a distant memory.

    As once-empty roads fill up again, with more cars, lorries and motorcyclists, and with more people now enjoying cycling and walking, the roads and pavements may all be busier. So it’s even more essential that we all slow down and watch out for each other.

    Please keep yourself and others safe:

    • Wear your seatbelt.
    • Don’t drink and drive or take drugs and drive.
    • Stop your car somewhere safe if you need to use your mobile phone when driving.
    • Drive within the speed limits


    Whether you have been using the roads during the lockdown or not, now is the time to think about other road users and how they may be affected by your actions.

    We, Transport for Buckinghamshire, Thames Valley Police and Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue all ask you to look out for each other by being a responsible and considerate road user and keep watching out for other people as you did during the pandemic.
